Understanding Debts in Bankruptcy

For a Baltimore and Maryland individuals and couples looking into bankruptcy, the way to understand your debts is to ask yourself the following two questions:
Can I wipe the debt off(discharge)?

Do I want to save the property tied to a debt?

An example of a debt you can write off is your mortgage, but you may want to save your home. To save your home, you need to have a plan to become current your payments and perhaps even work out a more manageable mortgage payment.

As your Baltimore bankruptcy lawyer, this is how I may discuss the debts and explain how they will be handled in your bankruptcy. I will start with the category that most people worry about the most. Many of the Baltimore area individuals I have helped worry a lot about whether they can keep their homes or car.
